Karam 2 Auxiliary Event

20221208T0700 20221208T0900 Africa/Casablanca Breakfast with scale-up champions!

Social and behavior change initiatives have the potential to transform lives around the world – addressing economic, health, gender, and educational disparities. However, the promise of fundamental and lasting change can only be fulfilled if we are able to sustainably scale successful approaches. Join us in this informal breakfast session with other scaling practitioners to share your successes and challenges and learn how to accelerate your scale-up journey.

 Session facilitators will briefly introduce participants to the growing science of scale and lay out the ExpandNet/WHO scaling-up framework, tools and approach. They will discuss key principles of scaling, including the scaling trajectory that begins with planning for future scale up from the earliest stages of project design, then systematically developing a scaling up strategy for successfully tested interventions, and followed by strategic management of the scaling-up process. This will be followed by discussion among scale-up champions sharing their experiences in applying a systematic approach to scaling norms-shifting programs in Mali and DRC. To conclude, participants will meet in focused mentorship groups to address scaling challenges they have identified prior to- or at the beginning of the session. The goal of this session is to tackle the sticky issues in scaling SBCC approaches, such as balancing fidelity to the original approach with adaptation to new contexts and identifying who is best equipped to lead expansion of social change.

In the last 20 minutes, participants will be introduced to ExpandNet's new Scale-up Learning Center (SLC), which is currently in development as an online, open-source learning and exchange platform offering a scaling-up curriculum. Participants will ha ...

In the last 20 minutes, participants will be introduced to ExpandNet's new Scale-up Learning Center (SLC), which is currently in development as an online, open-source learning and exchange platform offering a scaling-up curriculum. Participants will have the opportunity to give input to help shape the platform in ways that will be most useful to meet their learning needs.

 
The session facilitators will be Dr. Rebecka Lundgren of the University of California-San Diego's Center on Gender Equity and Health (USA) and a member of the ExpandNet Secretariat; Mariam Diakite of Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health (Mali); and Jennifer Gayles of Save the Children (USA). This event is co-sponsored by ExpandNet and the Health Technical Working Group of the Community of Practice on Scaling up Development Outcomes, the latter led by Management Systems International and the Brookings Institution.
